This Story Nothing To Sneeze At!

There will be no sneezing for two young men during the coming fifty years that they will spend in jail for kidnapping a young girl whose family rejected the marriage proposal of one of the men. Being good Pakistani young men, being proud Muslims, they thought a man had every right to kidnap a girl and cut off her nose and ears because the family did not accept a marriage proposal. Ordinarily, in all too many cases some religious court would back up the men because women are supposed to obey the whims of males. But, a Pakistan court viewed the entire incident as an attack on women! Wow! They ordered the men to spend fifty years in jail and to have their noses and ears cut off.

I am so happy to have the United States be an ally of such advanced nations like Pakistan. We are going to win the war of the ears and come within a nose of final victory.
